Stress Relief – Stress is part of everyday life, and with massage, stress is relieved through the manipulation of body’s soft tissues.

The masseuses use their fingers, fists and feet to apply long, smooth strokes and kneading movements to improve blood circulation in the muscles.

This brings in fresh nutrients, releases accumulated toxics and strengthens muscles


Tension Pain Relief – Massage treatment can warm up your muscles and improve joint movement, relax tense muscles, stimulate the flow of blood and nutrients to the skin and underlying tissues, and lymph drainage.

Pain which increases over time if left untreated. Neck, shoulder, back and lower back pain can all be treated with a variety of pain-release techniques. Expert masseuses recognize differences in firmness and tightness at different places of the muscles and adjusts pressure accordingly to loosen the tension spots.

Frequently Asked Questions about Massage Therapy

Your registered massage therapist takes the time to make sure that their treatment is tailored to meet your personal health goals.

During your initial interview, your massage therapist will ask you questions about your current and past health history, activities, and work demands to develop an effective treatment plan. Good communication is an important part of this process. You can ask administration to any help.

After the initial interview, your massage therapist will instruct you on how to position yourself on the table, and then will leave the room to provide you with privacy to get undressed to a level with which you are comfortable. Each room at our clinic, is fully private, with ergonomically-designed padded, comfortable tables, and is prepared with fresh linens prior to your arrival. Once you are positioned comfortably under the sheets, your massage therapist will re-enter the room.

During the session, your massage therapist will maintain an open dialogue with you to ensure that you are comfortable throughout the session, and that the treatment provided meets your needs. As a part of your session, your massage therapist may also include instruction on exercises or stretches to perform at home to maximize the treatment’s effectiveness.

For your initial appointment, we recommend 60 minutes to allow for adequate treatment time

After your session, you will likely feel a sense of relaxation and relief, and a decrease in muscle tension/aches. In some cases, you may temporarily feel a mild sense of fatigue. Others report feeling energized. Your massage therapist may recommend follow-up home care like fluids, heat or cold, or stretches/exercises to maximize the treatment effect. If you are still feeling pain or discomfort, it is important to stick to the treatment plan your massage therapist recommended as sometimes more than one treatment is necessary for a desired result.

Massage therapy can be an effective complement to different therapies (e.g. physiotherapy, chiropractic, active rehabilitation), and can enhance or extend the therapeutic effects of other treatments. However, in some cases it may be more appropriate to have certain types of treatment sessions precede others (e.g. massage therapy prior to chiropractic treatment, or active rehabilitation prior to massage therapy).

Massage is a wonderful way to relax, relieve pain and discomfort, and help you cope with stress and fatigue during pregnancy. During pregnancy, your body undergoes several changes, including weight gain and postural shifts. This results in extra pressure on your joints and more strain on your muscles. Massage helps relieve muscle and joint discomfort associated with these changes. Massage therapy is also a natural therapeutic option for the management of certain chronic conditions and prevention of illness. Regularly scheduled massage treatments are particularly essential since many medications that are considered relatively safe to control symptoms and discomfort (such as pain killers, anti-inflammatories, laxatives, sleeping pills) are not recommended (or desirable) to take during pregnancy. Talk with your therapist to determine what treatment plan is appropriate for you.

Yes. That’s why it’s imperative that you complete your health history questionnaire in detail and go through an assessment with your massage therapist prior to treatment. It is very important that you inform your massage therapist of any health problems you have had or are currently dealing with, or medications you are taking. If you are under a doctor’s care, it may help the massage therapist to have a referral from your doctor to describe your medical condition or recommend care. This way, your massage therapist will be able to work with your doctor to treat you more effectively.

Many insurance plans provide excellent coverage for massage therapy by a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT). At Total Therapy, we kindly request that you pay for your visit up front. We will provide you with a detailed receipt that you can then submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Please call us for more information on MSP as well as ICBC claim coverage.

Our massage therapists are health professionals (licensed under the Health Practitioners Act-the same law that governs physicians, dentists, etc.) and tipping is not expected or necessary. Your return visits are the best reward and your referral is always most appreciated.
